Patrice Evra has assured Manchester United fans there is no chance of his team-mates becoming distracted by what is sure to be huge attention over David Beckham's return to Old Trafford.

Beckham's return to United with AC Milan for the Champions League last-16 tie will be the former England captain's first trip back to the club since leaving in 2003 after Sir Alex Ferguson tired of his love of the limelight. Although the pair have since patched up their differences, Beckham's presence is certain to attract enormous interest.

"Who can say whether it will help or not the fact that all the focus will be on him," reflected Evra.

"After all, when we played against Barcelona it was all Messi v Ronaldo. For us it is normal. The pressure is normal.

"I am more interested in playing against AC Milan than David Beckham.

"What I do know is that our confidence is high.

"For us, the target every year is to reach the final, and from there to win it."
